Stop! STOP!

It is all going to be A-OK.

The popeVicar of Christ & the Primate of Italy — has finally decided that he is going to ask God to stop this.

About bloody time — wouldn’t you say?

What was he waiting for? Christmas?

I am NOT even going to ask why God needs to be asked.

Wasn’t God AWARE?

Possible. Did God too think it was a hoax?

All this stuff with God is very confusing to I.

Christians tell me, repeatedly, that God does NOT micromanage and that God gave ‘us’ free will. Wel …

So, why hasn’t it stopped already?

Shouldn’t the pope have asked for God to cure those stricken as well.

I am going to start counting days to see how long it takes God to take action.

Join me.

But, STOP.

Everything is going to be A-OK.

Rejoice.

I am impressed and happy.

I have been a TDS customer for over 11-years and these days we have a rather extensive TDS presence in the house with: 1 Gig Internet, TDS TV and the latest TDS MESH Wi-Fi.

Yes, I have a fairly HEFTY TDS bill. SMILE.

TDS and I have had our moments. But, they impress me quite often. This is another instance.

I am proud of them and GLAD to be a TDS customer.

Good for YOU, TDS.

Keep it up.

I will NOT call up and complain about my bill for the next two-months. SMILE.

Maine Restaurants/Bars Still Open For St. Patrick’s Day Partying — COVID-19 Be Damned.

by Anura Guruge



OPEN — for now.
I just called (11:30am).

“Warren’s Lobster House”, Kittery, Maine — OPEN.

 


I just checked. I just called.

Occurred to me last night that I had heard NOTHING about restaurant/bar closures in Maine.

Yes, we are closed — and I knew that was coming.

Massachusetts, of course, was one of the firsts to close …

Maine is really just across the border from MA — just a quick 12-minutes drive through NH.

Kittery & York, on the border, has some great places to eat and be merry.

So, let the partying begin.

I might have to go to Maine just to show my support and solidarity.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

19-Year Old Basketball Player, Zion Williamson, A Much Needed HERO In These Troubled Times.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Google ‘Zion Williamson’ for more … much more.

WOW. WOW. WOW!

And he is ONLY 19-years old. Wow. (I have a 19-year old, but she (at least as yet) can’t afford to be this magnanimous.)

Such empathy. Such generosity. Last year, if YOU remember, we had ‘Robert F. Smith‘. Now this. WOW.

I am humbled, awed and delighted.

His mother, who he credits for instilling this level of generosity, should be so proud.

We should ALL be proud of him.

Those ‘poor’ arena workers must ADORE him — quite rightly.

This boy will go FAR. I did some Googling. They reckon he is on track to make a BILLION DOLLARS during his career. I really hope he does so at a minimum. I hope he does even better.

He should be given the Presidential Medal of Freedom BUT not by the current president BECAUSE Trump is NOT WORTHY of being in this boy’s company!

Very special.

I am so happy. I am so proud for HUMANITY.

I don’t like basketball, I don’t watch basketball BUT I am going to follow and ROOT FOR this young man.

Bidets Are Making A Come Back, And I Am Tickled Pink.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. I will be happy to help you choose. I am an EXPERT & connoisseur.


Growing up, we had bidets in Ceylon — and we are talking 1950s & 1960s.

OK. I should be more precise. Growing up I had bidets.

The two main bathrooms in our rambling, rather large, 3-story house had bidets.

I used to spend all my weekends and holidays at the house of a maternal aunty & uncle. They had a bidet in their main bathroom — the one I used since I slept in their room, with them.

All three were of the ‘shower type’ and since we used roof mounted water tanks you got a good ‘head’ of water from the shower head.

It is true that bidets were not universal in Ceylon. Most bathrooms did not have them.

But, we never used paper! I never knew of toilet paper until I came to the West in 1967.

We used water, even if we didn’t have a bidet.

Paper seems so unsanitary compared to water.

We discovered, during the long years we lived in France, that French bidets were different. They didn’t have a shower head! We could not see the use of a bidet UNLESS it did the work.

Not sure how we ended up with bidets. My adoptive mother was quite the socialite and my adoptive parents were the classic nouveau riche, while the aunty & uncle I spoke up, who didn’t have any kids, were plain rich (he a government lawyer and she the assistant principal of Ceylon’s largest school). Both houses were built c. 1954/1955. I think my mother must have seen them in a magazine.

Well, since I really am NOT into scatology I am going to leave this at this. SMILE.

Ah! Bidets.

My ‘Google Pixel 4’ Now Has The ‘Android 10’, March 5, 2020 Update — Two-Days Early.

by Anura Guruge



Kind of cool to have a ‘March 5’ update already installed on March 3rd.

But, I do have a Google Pixel 4 and I am led to believe that Pixel 4 owners get first dibs — as it SHOULD be. SMILE.

I had read about the March ‘feature drop’ for Pixel 4s as of the weekend. I didn’t need any of the new features, BUT I like having the latest update, if nothing else for all the bug fixes and behind the scene refinements.

I checked for the update yesterday; Monday, March 2nd. Nada.

Checked this afternoon around 4pm. Bingo.

Haven’t used the phone (really) since the update. So, I can’t tell if everything is still copacetic. I assume and hope so.
